Wall unveils $10K tax credit for new homeowners
The Saskatchewan Party says it will give new homeowners a $10,000 credit that will result in tax savings of $1,100.
Party leader Brad Wall made the announcement Thursday during a campaign stop in Regina.
The party is also promising that if it is re-elected, it will give the same credit to people who have disabilities and who are purchasing a more accessible home —whether it's a first-time home or not.
The proposed provincial tax credit piggybacks on a similar plan offered by the federal government which can save a homeowner $750.
The plan would cost the province about $6.6 million a year, the Sask. Party says.
The provincial election is Nov. 7.
